. it is veterans day and we thank all of you out there who have served your country. america is the strongest nation on earth, largely because of you. the military and the fort hood massacre, that is the subject of this evening's "talking points" memo. a new rasmussen poll said 81% of americans have a favorable view of the military, just 9%, just 9%, unfavorable. now, i'm guessing some of that 9% in the media. but now there's a military controversy over the nissan hasan. the information was passed along to the army and the army said that's not true. only a congressional investigate will get to the bottom of this and there should be one because there's no question, no question, that nidal malik hasan is a terrorist. a man who murdered 13 innocent people because of jihad, the muslim holly war. as "talking points" stated last night, the massacre at fort hood is not a crime, a tragedy, norlt the action of a man snapping. it is an act of war perpetrated by a muslim terrorist who believes that infidels should die. now, we all know the obama administration and many other americans have trouble with
of their empathy as well as their broader vision of what america should be. this is a stunning declaration, i think, to those of us who dedicated our professional lives to the law. this standard stings the years. to the president, the constitution, i would argue, is no longer the supreme law of the land. control by the judges for societal change and political transformation, this is what i call a call for activism. to a administered justice without respect to persons, to do equal right to the poor and the rich, and to act faithfully and impartially under the constitution the laws of the united states is replaced by a new approach. this new approach freeze the lifetime appointed [unintelligible] and permit him to involve long to achieve their desired outcome. in short, the empathy standard is a politically new, but carefully chosen codeword for the bold and brazen judicial activism. consider the words of justice so my yousotomayor. in her speeches, she repeatedly said that it was right and natural that a judge's opinions, sympathies, and prejudices would influence their decision making and for their
